Maybe sometime in the morning around 8 am PST... atleast that is what they did when they added the new slide for the $30 plan... cause I dont remember seeing that slide right after midnight, but later on..

Agreed.

Especially since it's well known the accessories have been available for several days now.


Time to resort to the handbook

just got off the phone with *490 metropcs.. i just ask when the SGS3 will be out.. she had me on hold for 2 min then came back on the line and said "sorry i can't tell you anything abou the sgs3 becuse the phone just started to be rolled out... if you like to know more about the phone goto metropcs dot com.. for any new news about the phone." so it looks like who ever said it was going to be the 17 is right..:-)
ps i am going to do mine online.. each dealer i talk to said they will have the phone the next day after it's online.. 3 out of 4 told me the phone will be out nov 2 and the crop.. store told me this week but not sure what day..

Me everyone is excited, well the corp store better have a good supply, and online is more waiting plus anything can happen like damage etc. And f99k dealer cheaters no offense to the good dealers but around my area all of them are thieves.

I am serious, btw.
i apologize for ricky he dosnt mean any wrong he just as excited a as a chubby lil kid at a baskin robbins hes good friend of mine he just trying to share the excitement all around. trust me he never gets this crazy only when me and mikey take him to chucky cheese. but anyways ill txt him later and try to calm him lol i promise. anyways back to topic mikey we aint going to bed early im gonna tell my missy, daddy has got to stay up late so lots of coffee jk i might fall asleep either way but just txt me lol and no dont buy from dealer nor corp they both will charge you the upgrade fee of $15 which for many dosnt sound like alot but after spending $500 plus taxes them $15 are a pain in the butt so i dont care ill wait an extra 5 more days to get it through mail.Besides lets me realistic not every dealer or corp will have them right away... and when they do get a shipment they only get 3-4 at a time dunno just telling ya the experience i had with the esteem when i got it in the december of 2011 the esteem was harder to find than sasquatch i finally found a dealer near my home that had just 1 left and i was like wow why so hard to get they said they only get 3-4 at a time and they sell like hot cakes. so whose to say the gs3 wont be any different????? i aint waiting till decemeber i want my gs3 asap!!

You can go to any dealer store and ask them where is the corporate store close to you. To be honest with you I don't really know the difference but when I have a problem with the phone they always send me to the corporate store. Also they get the new phones first so check where is your corporate store to get that s3 like rapido

Either or, I would be satisfied with. But we get none. I like a specific month tho instead of the old "after September, before December" thing, lmao.

Careful there Ricky. This is the esteem forum, and gs3 talk is hitherto off-topic. That's why they locked the other thread.
You don't wanna get on earlyMon's back side.

I had a tech rep help turn pic messaging on in my Motion a few days ago , she in California-me in Florida .

Asked about S3 release date-she said Oct 17 I confirmed with Corporate salesperson in Orlando -

BUT- unable to get anyone else to confirm.

Reliable local dealer South Fl. says they expect to have some this Friday in 4 days-writing this on Monday.

Make sure to get great protection you dont want the 550 dollar device to break, [;us if the digitizer breaks your out of luck buddy its almost impossible to separate it from the lcd/led. Well that is the bad part and the screen assembly cost almost 300 dollar.

Actually it's easy. The digitizer is usually connected to the front housing and it's the last thing you take off. Finding the parts cheap on the other hand is a different story.

Actually thinking about starting up a side business for repairing/modding phones for my area since there's no one around here that does anything like that. Im sure theres a lot of people out there that dont have insurance and have broken phones.

Depends on the phone and what it would cost for the parts. but just for labor I would charge $50. I think that seems fair. haven't really thought about it honestly haha

Have you done any digitizer replacement on the GS2? Or the Nexus please let me know I would consider you helping me in the future of course paid lol. Because from research I have learned that replacing the GS2 or GS3 glass is almost impossible since its so thin, also there is like almost zero guide out there for GS3 or GS2 digitizer replacement, and lastly well I have experience replacing couple of other android devices and iphone devices digitizer but Galaxy series is another story.

I guess I enjoy working with my hands more than others being that I do it for a living

The work isnt hard at all and honestly I would feel as if I was ripping people off charging any more than that.

Have you tried taking the phone apart at all? Since you have some expierence with it, I would see how far in you can get and see what it looks like. I don't see there being that many differences between phones and how they are put together.


This might help?

Says you buy the LCD and digi together. Can get it from Ebay for about $120.

That's why i always buy my phones from bb. Their on contract phone may be more expensive without contract, but how often people buy those off contract? Their prepaid phones are priced like other stores. But they offer the best insurance you can get on a phone. If it breaks for any reason, including using it as a baseball, they'll fix or replace it with no deposit.
